Segun was in his room listening to music from his mp3 player. He was humming to the rythm of the song and dancing. There was a knock on the door. He stood up and met Mary at the door.
“Can i come in?” Mary asked.
“Yeah.” Segun replied stepping aside and opening the door wider for her. She walked in and sat down on the only available chair near his reading table.
“Bro, am not happy with you.” she broke the silence.
“Why?” he asked.
“Why are you treating your girlfriend this way?” she asked.
“Girlfriend?” he wondered.
“Yes, sister Jummy reported you to me. She said you no longer have time for her. Is that true?” she asked.
“She told you all these?”
“I know you are treating her bad because of that girl Nike.” she said irritatedly.
“And what gave you the assurance that i’m seeing Nike?” he asked.
“Never mind but just have it at the back of your mind that the law of karma will act very soon.” she said and stood up.
“What has karma got to do with this?” he asked.
“I know you won’t want any guy to treat your daughter or even your sister the way you are treating Jummy.” she said and left the room. Segun sat down and pondered over what Mary said and shook his head.
“No doubt, this people are working together against me. But wait o, i am not in love with Jummy now.” he thought. “Then i’ll have to iron things out with her.” he said loudly as he stood up and headed to the bathroom.
He came out a few minutes later and got dressed in a native attire and a black shoe to match. He headed out for a wedding ceremony he was invited to by one of his classmate. He met Jummy on the stairs coming up to meet him.
“Where to?” she asked.
“Bunmi’s sister’s wedding.” he replied.
“Oh! Thats true. I was thinking we should go together.” she said.
“I’m sorry we can’t go together.” he said.
“But why?” she asked.
“Because i don’t want to be delayed. Infact i don’t want to go with you.” he said.
“Ah!” she exclaimed.
“You must wait for her so that you two can go together.” a voice thundered from the dining. As they both turned to look at the owner of the voice.
